A new rig for the Southern Platte
Fire Protection District
Pierce Manufacturing – Take a walk around Southern Platte Fire Protection District’s Velocity 100’ Heavy-Duty Aerial Platform with a tandem rear axle.
The department went with a true clean cab including vinyl seating and aluminum treadplate flooring, both providing an easy wipe down. This also includes having both EMS compartments accessible on the outside and strategically placing the air packs away from the cab to help keep carcinogens away after fighting a fire.
When visiting Pierce, the engineering team helped department determine where their equipment would be stored on the truck providing them with the best storage options, saving a lot of time.
Located on the rear, to prevent wasted space, there is a deep well compartment to store shovels and hose if needed.
